This paper discusses the process of constructing the seminar "SUS Humanization under Discussion" and demonstrates its connection with the current challenges of the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS) and with the propositions of the National Humanization Policy (PNH). It presents the principles and guidelines of the PNH for SUS and its construction process, and discusses the different meanings of the term "humanization". It concludes by indicating the methodological stakes of the seminar, which aimed to promote a wide debate about the humanization of SUS by means of circles of conversation. These had the objective of forming an interface with professionals who are engaged in training workers for SUS and who are responsible for producing knowledge in the field of healthcare and for training students in this field.
